soft tissue injury to hand/wrist
3weeks ago I sustained a very painful soft tissue injury to my thumb/wrist. an x ray showed a 'line'along my trapezium bone but no fracture or break. swelling has mostly gone down now and pain nearly gone , but fingers still stiff and numb. still cannot make a fist,write or bear weight. Should i be concerned or is this a normal recovery time ? Thank

Hi.thanks for your responses . it was s direct hit to the side of my hand/thumb. Lots of swelling, lack of sensation . nurse said easier if i had broken it as all nerves etc pass along the area i had damaged. each day is different and i' ll give it til.early next week before going back to Dr as it will be 4weeks by then . :)
